Indonesia in January?

Posted by mariaescandell on 17/4/2017 at 11:27

We are planning a trip to Asia and I was thinking about visiting Indonesia where we haven't been. We can just travel december -january. But now when I started reading about it I see that it is raining season!!
Has someone been there on January? We where thinking about Yogyakarta, Bali ( Ubud) and maybe Sulawesi or Flores. Even if we are open to recomendations!!! I am looking for NOT crowded places.
I rather visit another place than visit a country with rain all day long. I already had that experience in Vietnam and did not liked it at all!!!
Please HELP!!!

Yes that is wet season and I wouldn't recommend a trip here focussed on beaches at that time of the year as some, especially those in Bali, are filthy.

Inland though, Yogyakarta and Ubud for example are good in wet season, though yes, expect some rain—not all day torrential, but expect at least some rain most days.

If you'd prefer to avoid the rain, countries in mainland Southeast Asia will be a better choice at that time of the year.

Thank you, I guess Ubud and Yogyakarta can work well, but my worry is the rest of the trip, and I am not sure if it is possible to really enjoy the landscapes. That I think are the highlights of Indonesia.
